Maryanne Trump Barry, Former Federal Judge And Sister Of President Trump Passes Away At 86

According to the sources, Maryanne Trump Barry, the former President Trump’s sister and a retired federal judge, passed away at age 86. Maryanne Trump, who served as a federal appellate judge in Philadelphia, retired in 2019. Barry underwent a civil misconduct inquiry initiated after reports by The New York Times suggested and concluded that the then-president and his siblings had ducked inheritance taxes.

Following her brother’s victory in the 2016 presidential election, Barry relinquished her court staff and assumed inactive status in early 2017, as reported by The Associated Press.

Maryanne Trump Barry, a former judge and former President Donald Trump’s sister, died at 86 at her residence in New York. The New York Police Department has confirmed the news of the death of Barry, as they responded to a call early in the morning.

Maryanne Trump Barry served as a senior judge on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. This specific Court is one level below the Supreme Court; however she serves till 2019 unless she has been retired. The sources never stated her cause of her death as it is not even clear, and people are waiting for the details, which are yet to be publicly announced by either the court or the Trump family.

Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of President Trump, briefly spoke about his aunt, affirming it as a “rough day for myself and my family” as he departed a Manhattan courthouse. Trump Jr. had been informed of the news earlier in the morning.

Before getting on the bench, Barry worked as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in 1974. President Ronald Reagan appointed Maryanne Trump to the U.S. District Court for New Jersey in 1983. Later, in 1999, President Bill Clinton appointed her to the 3rd U.S. Court of Appeals in Philadelphia.

Barry faced scrutiny in 2018 when the Trump siblings alleged, including Maryanne Trump Barry, had engaged in a tax scheme their father, Fred Trump, devised to expand the family fortune and potentially avoid taxes. That specific report suggested that the Trump siblings, Barry included, had benefited from a “false corporation” designed to hide millions of dollars in gifts from their parents.

Despite the dispute, Barry’s retirement in April 2019 ended the civil misconduct inquiry prompted by the Times’ report. Maryanne Trump Barry was also in the spotlight in 2020 when The Washington Post released a secretly recorded audio of her criticising her brother as a liar with “no principles” and “cruel.” The audio, recorded by Mary Trump, the former president’s niece, was part of the material used in her 2020 book about the Trump family, “Too Much and Never Enough.”

Maryanne Trump Barry had a remarkable career, making headlines in a 2006 immigration case where she expressed concern about judges having too little scope in evaluating who should remain in the U.S. due to rigid laws. Known for her ironic humour, she once taunted during a 2015 Super Bowl ticket case.

As the oldest sister of Donald Trump, Maryanne Trump Barry’s passing marks another loss in the Trump family; Donald Trump’s only living sibling is his sister, Elizabeth Trump Grau. Trump’s younger brother, Robert Trump, passed away in 2020. Conversely, his older brother, Fred Trump Jr., died of a heart attack at 42.

Barry died when Donald Trump’s younger brother, Robert Trump, died in 2020. Ivana Trump, Donald Trump’s first wife, also died last year at the age of 73. The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Maryanne Trump Barry’s passing.
